Turns into a great movie.
I thought it was corny, campy, and hokey at first. But, I stuck with it and it turns into an entertaining film of predictable, yet tolerable romance, buffered by military intrigue and espinonage, and general light hearted fun. I have seen this plot played over and over again - this one has a genuine air about it.
I love how the one guy keeps saying "the Navy is the first line of defense", but when the Navy gets in trouble... They call on the US Marines!!!

This film although kinda corney by our standards today, is a very good example of the innocese of the 30's and a very refreshing look back at yesteryear. This is a love story/intreage and you can still find this type of story line in lots of todays movies. Again this movie is worth seeing if only for letting yourself go and relive the way people tryed to escape the depression.
